limerock ruby coreopsis

I didn't have any trouble finding the seeds of my early sunrise coreopsis, but these flowers are much smaller. Is there an easy way to collect seeds, or do I just need to break up the dried flower head and save all of it?

RE: limerock ruby coreopsis

Limerock ruby is a sterile hybrid and doesn't produce seed, alas. Some coreopsises (coreopses?) do have small flowers, and quite small seeds, so you should be able to keep all of it if you like, but make sure the chaff is completely dry before you store it, or it could rot the seeds.

Thanks for the info. I would have wasted a lot of time trying to get seeds.
